For the 8th time: Insight into the stage technologies

»Five easy pieces« by Milo Rau, Ghent

Conception and guide:
Bernd E. Gengelbach, Co-Director and Technical Director euro-scene Leipzig,
and Antje Gruber, Construction forman Schauspiel Leipzig

At 11. and 12. Nov. will be shown the piece »Five easy pieces« at Schauspielhaus.

Stage technology is usually a mystery and generally invisible for the audience. You usually just pay attention to the stage design, music and lighting. The performance lasts two hours; the technical set-up from unloading the set until the beginning of the performance often takes two complete days.

In 2010, euro-scene Leipzig elicited great interest with a first insight into technical processes. The guided tour has developed into a popular programme element in the course of the last seven editions. This year, it will take place at the Schauspielhaus. The focus is on the history of the venue and a look into the venue’s rooms, but primarily on the technical realisation of the guest performance »Five easy pieces« by Campo & IIPM / Milo Rau, Ghent, and the competition »Best German dance solo«.
